France? It has been developed in Germany. Bugatti is part of the German company VW, Bugattis CEO is German, Bugattis chief-engineer is German, the Chiron project-leader is German.

Bugatti is French. It is the origin country of the make, not the model.

In that case all Lambos should be regarded as "German". Not only is Bugatti historically French, I also believe they are built in France. At least as far as assembly.

...Origin, is the key word.


User avatar

FastestLaps  1m ago @BR2+

Either way, it's sometimes a subjective decision to chose "origin" countyr for a car as there are cases when historically a make has been associated with country A, while now it is headquartered and desined in country B and built in countries C and D.

Just like categorizing cars by type (saloon, sub, crossover, compact) or deciding whether a new model requires a new page (small changes are not worth splitting lap times between 2 pages), country of origin is basically a subjective choice. It just wouldn't feel "right" to say that country origin for any Bugatti is Germany, given the history and the fact that indeed the Bugatti factory is in France, despite the undeniable 90% of engineering being German.

I do somewhat agree, But I think the origin country should be the 'Original' origin of the car, Not where its parts are made, or what country the people that built the car came from, but the company itself, I myself have never ever considered Bugatti German, not even today, sure German influences, but thas it.

Please add these estimated stats to the page.
You can average out the 2 different runs of the Chiron to get VERY VERY good estimates for speed, distance and time.
1/4 mile 9.11 seconds @239+ km/h(149 mph). The Chiron hit 239 km at the 400m mark so slightly above 239 km/h at the 402m or 1/4 mile mark.
The standing 1/2 mile takes place in 14.3 seconds at 305 km/h(189.5 mph)
The standing mile takes place in 22.2 seconds at 347+km/h(216 mph).

The 1/4 mile is 9.11 seconds when you sync up the 2 runs one which shows the time and speed and the other run shows time and distance.

it's what follows when some fool is telling you that his BMW is better than your Audi. That's a valid war worth fighting for.

Late for every valid war and start nonsense ones. The French did very well against much greater numbers by Italy in the South of France until the Germans came and helped the Italians.

I guess they're afraid of some amateur going 280mph through a tunnel and ending up some latter day Bernd Rosemeyér. Even though he was an incredible driver cars are so much safer today even for non pros. Speed limiter is annoying and unnecessary as most megabucks country clubbers might hit 200 on the Autobahn at the very most.


User avatar

Well to be honest, they did put less emphasis on top speed. Simply because of tires. Tires that were efficient and sturdy for 450+kph runs are not sticky enough at "sane" speeds like track cornering and braking. People kept saying the Veyron couldn't corner and this was easily one of the biggest weakness. Who said a heavy car couldn't corner...? Z/28. But those tires would blow up for sure on a top speed run


User avatar

Given the cat 1500bhp and not going for top speed? What Bs, What's next a San which with no bread? Pizza with no cheese? Pretty woman with a flat bottom? Bentley making a track car?....Wait


User avatar

Fastedee  1y ago

It's a bit like top fuel dragster using a parachute for 5g + braking .


User avatar

saxy  1y ago

150mph in 9 seconds is quite impressive. Though I have to say, the speedo didn't really climb that fast above 200kph... weight is still an issue.

I'd guess the car would trap 160mph in 9.3s on a better run?


User avatar

saxy  1y ago

2g in braking is somewhat a vague stat to misinform the less knowledgeable car people.

When the car is traveling at near top speed, 450kph, just from lifting off the throttle the air resistance will give the car a drag deceleration of 0.45g (yes I calculated that). Add the sticky tires and downforce naturally 2g braking should be easily achievable.


User avatar

2g in braking woah.

You usually see that kinda torque on something towing a 53 foot trailer and that amount of bhp on a ww2 fighter.

Bugatti Chiron first reviews are flowing in:

Unfortunately, these are not the type of reviews that will provide any test data.

Well clearly this car wasn't made for you. There are plenty of hardcore cars for lap times. This one is for acceleration and top speed. Sure nobody can get to the top speed but anyone could experience the acceleration. I'm guessing this will do the 1/4 mile in less than 9.5s?
